The viper in question is the game's "Roto-Shooter," a rotating turret in the center of the game's playfield. When a player shoots the ball into the top center lane, it falls into the turret, allowing the player to fire at flashing red arrows around the table to raise the score multiplier. The game also offers three-ball multiball and three separate Specials; unfortunately, it didn't play very well in practice, with unbalanced scoring that confused players, and failed to sell in any significant numbers.

Added DiffLines:

* ScoreMultiplier: Shooting the red arrows increases the multiplier up to 9x. This affected all scores, not just the end-of-ball bonus, and contributed to the game's uneven scoring.
